Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – The S.L.P, Serge Pizzorno

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at an album that is the debut solo album of the frontman of Kasabian – The S.L.P by Serge Pizzorno 

 

Meanwhile…In Genova

This is a fantastic song to open up an album by Serge because it is so different to Kasabian and the use of so many different instruments really reflect and come through on this song. Right from the start of this song you feel like you are going on a journey – whether this is into the mind of The S.L.P or into the album, it is genius. The use of strings and drums throughout create a really interesting and hypnotizing sound. It is a beautiful piece of instrumental and sounds refreshing on the genre or indie, throughout you may hear essences of his band but it is ultimately unique and masterful.

 

 

Lockdown

Whist the lyrics are simple, they are made up by the music construction in this song, the way the piano melodies and the heavy drum beats intertwine through this song create a song that is like nothing else you have heard. You can tell that this song sort of has an element of experimental to it but it is also so stylish at the same time.

 

 

The Wu

This song starts with a fast, bass beat that intertwines into musical melodies that are familiar to Kasabian albums however the song stands on it’s own. The song has an electronic style to it but it is a different style of song so give it a listen.

 

 

Meanwhile…In The Silent Nowhere 

This song is a track that sort of closes the whole album well and brings everything together for an epic finale. It has a sort of echo feeling to it which is really effective, especially since it focusses on the melodies of the piano and a choral sound that intertwines throughout the song. The track also has an electronic beat that sort of echoes the essence of Muse which make the melodies of the first song when they are introduced beautiful an create a dream like state of mind.
